Syracuse football player stabbed By Matt Cunningham | September 29, 2004 Starting Syracuse cornerback Tanard Jackson was released from the hospital on Monday after being stabbed in the chest following a fight near Syracuse's student activity center, ESPN.com reported Monday. Jackson's injuries were not life-threatening. "He's doing fine... We're hoping for a speedy recovery," Syracuse Football Coach Paul Pasqualo said, in an interview with the Associated Press. However, Pasqualo said that Jackson will probably miss Syracuse's Big East opener against Rutgers this weekend. Jackson was stabbed after he and fellow teammate, safety Reggie McCoy, attempted to break up a fight on Sunday around 2 a.m.
